Whilst, on the whole, I do not need anyone to validate me and/or my thoughts even I will admit to succumbing to the odd slap on the back, as just received: “Research suggests that brainstorming does NOT work. Groups of individuals come up with more feasible ideas when they work ALONE on a problem and THEN pool their solutions”. HA. I knew it, I knew it, I knew it.
AND, sweethearts: Relax. Creative breakthroughs “appear to come from the right side of the brain, the one more active when we cease to focus, are half asleep, daydreaming or drunk“. If that doesn’t give us carte blanche I don’t know what will.
